grizz, I'm sure I would have done what you did, in the house clearing, if I could remember correctly what my single days were like. I mean, you're sure the house is empty, and you get the chance to "rescue" her from her fears... Style points, maybe not tactical points. The one tactical suggestion I would have is the same one our local PD uses when they get the call: use a dog. This would never happen in my house, simply because the dogs will clear the house before I could even close the car door. THEN follow the dog in with weapon at ready, to collect the style points. Then break the roommate's arm, and explain that statistically more people are injured trying to take away other people's guns than if they left them alone... No wait, never mind the last part.
